Milwaukee could take feedback they receive on the M67 inflator and later come out with a larger and fully-featured M68 version. Will Dewalt come out with a smaller 67V Max inflator? Probably not.
There 8767 s a chance that they sold way more than they were expecting in, or maybe Dewalt supplies are scarcer than expected.
In fact, and maybe this is wonkish, but I wonder how you would compare the performance usefully. In a physics/engineering sense, I guess the metric would be work accomplished (by pressurizing air) per amp-hour. But that would probably change depending on whether you are creating a little high pressure air or a lot of low pressure air (because there would be more waste heat in the first. ) And anyway, that would be an abstract number until we learn to understand it.
I 8767 ve talked to a few smaller GCs after spotting a small herd of lime green machines on jobs sites, 8775 Craziest thing, the Ryobi rarely ever get abducted, havnt had to issue an Amber or Red alert. 8776
This looks like a dang near copy of ryobis dual inflator.
Same layout. Same tools on the same side that are stored the same way.
It seems like they put the inflator off for a LONG time because it would be deamed as “not professional”.
Good for them for finally coming out with one, im sure the dewalt boys will be enthused.
If I was in an area that I needed several walk behind or ZT mowers, the Dewalt could be invaluable in the took box, esp if a crew use 8767 s LiON OPM for early morning residential work. But I can also see just keeping a jump box as well.
Also, I found the electronic pressure setting to be a PITA. At first glance it seems like a good idea, but it can actually take quite awhile to set the pressure using it. Say for example you want to inflate something high pressure like a 655 psi bike tire. Well, with the Ryobi, you turned it on, and then starting from 65 psi, you pushed the “+” button over and over again until you finally reached 655. Once there you could turn it on and walk away, but despite that I’ve found a trigger and a gauge to be much more convenient.
